That little plastic diffuser doesn’t change any of those. All it accomplishes is moving $8.00 out of your wallet.

A real flash is not a big deal. Clip it on, set it to TTL and bounce it off the ceiling. Not that hard.

Where can I get this red flash?

People normally use colored gels to modify the light. See this…

Keep in mind, the flash unit doesn’t need to be attached to the top of your camera. It can be triggered remotely.

I want the hot shoe flash so I can get used to it. Plus it looks cool
